What is Microsoft Azure Data Box?

The Azure Data Box service lets you transfer terabytes of data into Azure in a quick, inexpensive, and reliable manner. Microsoft accelerates the secure data transfer by shipping you disks and handling the end-to-end logistics.

Transfer large amounts of data to Azure in 4 easy steps – order, receive, copy data to disks, and return disks to Azure. After the disks are received, data is ingested into Azure and disks are securely wiped.

Microsoft Azure Data Box is also known as Azure Data Box.

Saves us time and money when migrating large volumes of data to Azure

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider I have worked on two different projects with the Azure Data Box. It was used to back up all of the data from different teams for the purpose of DLP. We backed up more than 400 terabytes in total.

Pros and Cons

  • "The Azure Data Box saves us a great deal of time when migrating data to Azure."
  • "I am not confident in this device's ability to perform a network backup in our data center."

What other advice do I have?

Azure Data Box is something I would recommend for anyone who needs to migrate a large amount of data, for example from a data warehouse to the cloud. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
